Key functions of Webinar integration into our LMS

title image

At Gyrus, we aim to integrate webinars to our LMS to manage virtual lectures effectively. Our LMS webinar integration can be used to:

  • Quickly and effortlessly schedule training sessions through the LMS platform. Without integration, every service must be individually handled increasing the time taken, resources utilized and chances of errors. A webinar session can be created through our LMS in no time.

  • Record all the data in a single centralized system. Data such as student attendance is difficult to monitor if handled by third-party software. Integration with our LMS system will automate the entire data management process saving time and energy.

  • Send instant notification to the students about the webinar session through the LMS.

  • Set up the webinar tools easily. Most of the webinar tools work concurrently with our LMS. We offer several extensions and plugins that enable effortless implementation of video conferencing features in our LMS.

Webinars are an excellent supplement to online learning. It can bring people together, present visual data and stimulate discussion. Webinars integrated with LMS supports collaboration and makes the sessions event-driven instead of course driven.

Gyrus integrates its LMS with top of the line video conferencing applications such as Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Slack and so on to bring you the best of both worlds of LMS and Video Conferencing.
